A 30-year-old Missouri man is charged with sexually exploiting a child after police say his girlfriend used a hidden camera to catch him taking pictures of her 6-year-old daughter's privates.

The Kansas City Star reports the Raytown man was arrested early Sunday after his girlfriend called police. The mother said she installed a hidden camera in her daughter's bedroom early Saturday after finding the man in there several times while the girl was asleep.

Police say the woman told the man she was going to the store with a friend, but instead she monitored a live feed from the camera on her cellphone. Court documents say the video showed the man entering the girl's room, exposing her privates and taking pictures.

He was being held on $200,000 bond.
